Libra ♎ April 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


There are three main themes or categories this month and in one there is a lot to be either excited or reassured about. Those three categories are first the normal planetary activity you would expect in April, the second a settling down of what might have been challenging areas of your life over recent months and the third category is exciting new developments. In the ordinary developments that you would expect at this time of year, the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector, before turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters. This is something that happens on 20th April and at the same time every year.

Mercury begins the month in your work sector, where he is tying up loose ends after the Sun and Venus have already moved through, before joining the Sun in your relationship sector on 11th April. Mercury will stay on until 28th April, continuing to give your relationships a voice in a way that only the planet of communication can. It is on 28th April that Mercury will join the Sun in your financial sector, giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. Venus begins the month in your financial sector and it is the financial wish list she will leave you with on 4th April that the Sun will use as a blueprint.

Where you find that things are either less challenging or less volatile is on the home front. Where things may have swung from extremes you will now find that things are more stable and even, with things running more smoothly. It is the exciting new developments that really are exciting, with Venus beginning a four month visit to an adventurous part of your chart on 4th April, just as Saturn and Mars are spending their first full month together in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart since 1994.

LoveLibra April 2020 Love Horoscope

Every year has its ordinary pattern and on the relationship front, this is what you are experiencing this month. It is on the romantic front that something extraordinary and even game changing is underway. The ordinary pattern of each year is that the Sun, Mercury and Venus will move through your romantic sector in January and February of each year and through your relationship sector in March and April. So far that has been the case and continues to be, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector. While the Sun will be gone by 20th April, Mercury’s return on 11th April will keep the focus on your relationships.

Mercury is part of that annual pattern, with the planet of communication returning to give your relationships a voice and to ensure the communication lines are open. Mercury will be here from 11th April to 28th April. It is on the romantic front that the extraordinary is happening, at a time when all planetary activity on the romantic front should have run its course for the year. In terms of the ordinary focus that matters of the heart get once a year, that is the case. What we have this month is the extraordinary.

Just starting the month with Mars in your romantic sector is exciting, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos having returned in the final hours of March. However, it was Saturn’s return nine days earlier that has forever changed the dynamics on the romantic front, with his first visit since 1994 putting his considerable weight behind matters of the heart. With Mars here until the middle of next month, he will spend the whole of April fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit. Another factor is Venus, the planet of love’s return to an adventurous part of your chart from 4th April, where she will spend the next four months bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together.

The focus will always be on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year and at a bare minimum, this will begin when the Sun returns to your financial sector on 20th April. This is when the solar spotlight will always fall on your financial situation and money matters, the side of the financial fence where the focus is on what you do with and how you manage the money you have. When Uranus returned to your financial sector last year things changed because here until 2026, there is now continuous focus on money matters. However, Uranus works behind the scenes, quietly keeping things real and on track.

It is when the faster moving planets move through that there is a spike in the amount of focus you put on money matters and also a chance in focus. Uranus is here until 2026 so has another six years to steer money matters in the right direction. Uranus will make sudden course corrections when he needs to and they can come as a pleasant or an unwelcome surprise, but for the most part, his focus is a steady arc. While the Sun won’t turn the focus on your financial situation and money matters until 20th April, you begin the month with Venus here. It is the 16 days from Venus’ departure on 4th April to the Sun’s return that acts as a firebreak and makes these two separate chapters, where neither can influence the other.

Venus has returned to fuel your financial confidence, update your wish list and attract opportune financial outcomes. The Sun, when he returns will focus on keeping it real, demanding that you keep your eyes open and head out of the sand and that you deal with money matters in a realistic way. These chapters couldn’t be more different and they need to be. Venus’ job is not to keep it real. That’s the Sun’s job, freeing Venus to focus on the ‘what’ at the start of the month and the Sun and Mercury, who returns on 28th April with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, to focus on the ‘when, where and how’ by the end of the month.

CareerLibra April 2020 Career Horoscope

At a time when there is a lot of uncertainty in the world, the professional gods are working to keep it simple on both the job and career fronts this month. It is events next month that are also helping to diminish any urgency this month and especially any pressure to make final choices, decisions and plans. The Sun left your work sector last month, as he does at this time every year. However, until Mercury leaves on 11th April, there is a chance to keep your head in the game as you tie up loose ends. Mercury returned for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit in early February, giving you a lot more time this year.

Even then, this should suggest that until Mercury finally leaves on 11th April there should be a sense of urgency developing, as you finalise your game plan and resolutions for the coming year. However, even though Mercury’s departure will leave dreamy Neptune on his own and this is when the focus shifts to the big picture and the journey, there will be little urgency. Instead, there is a call to keep your mind and your options open. That is because while this is the point in most years when Neptune is on his own and it will stay that way for the rest of the year. That is not the case this year and not just because the dwarf planet Ceres will return on 24th April.

This in itself doesn’t take away the urgency, though with Ceres’ focus on updating your needs and priorities, especially in terms of job satisfaction and a sense of purpose, this could call for a change of mind over the coming months. The real reason for a lack of urgency is that Mars will return next month, opening up a whole new chapter of job potential and opportunities from mid May to the end of June. What Mercury leaves you with is everything you need for the next steps, without a need to make final decisions, mainly because you have yet to explore this year’s full potential.
